Dear internets, As Rachel is off in New York City for some blogging conference, I am stuck here at home with that man.  That man who insists on calling me “Poopsie” and holding me against my will, what a dorkbutt.  Since I’m busy hiding from him (and camera-shy today), I asked my pals K.C. (human [...]

Presenting… Colorado Star Cats!

Friday cat blogging.


I kind of like this picture of Kahlua, taken outside our front door looking in on her in the living room.  It reminds me of double exposure photos from film-based point-and-shoots…

Answer me this at 12:10 in the morning.

Stirring the crazy, part 2.


Yeah, I think going back to work part-time next week is a good idea. Last night, I began to seriously consider filming my own version of that disgusting Charmin commercial about staying clean after you know, going #2.  Instead of the Charmin bears using euphemisms for “dingleberry”, my cats would do so. (Perhaps cutting down [...]

Friday cat blogging.


Kahlua, with her giant paws, lounging on the couch a few weeks ago.  I don’t think she was particularly happy with me for taking her picture.

Sunday cat blogging.


Kahlua and Perl have become part of my weekday morning routine.  Usually, they start meowing at me to wake up anywhere between fifteen minutes to an hour before my alarm goes off.  As I head downstairs to take my morning meds, they head down in front of me to eat. And here is the proof:
